Evaluation of diverse and nutrient rich climate resilient crops/accessions for dietary diversification in marginal environments (trials)

Experiment 1

Evaluation of top-yielding finger-, foxtail- and pearl-millet accessions for yield, stability and inter-trait relationships under varying water salinity levels and irrigation regimes


To introduce, evaluate and identify nutritious, climate-resilient alternative crops better suited for dietary diversification in marginal areas.

Experiment 2

Assessment of finger- and foxtail-millet accessions for grain and fodder yield based on different planting dates under contrasting water salinity and irrigation water regimes


To determine the appropriate planting date for optimization of yield.
